When Love Looks the Other Way

img_1615 The hopes the dreams the fantasy of romance

Perhaps searching for truth fades toward eternity

Life hurts deeply in loneliness even in laughter

Love friendship gratitude blessings beyond what others suffer

Severely stained within their own hidden world

The thoughts of detachment and the emptiness

Yet still seems to attract captive interest in wisdom shared

Romantic love and bonding eludes outside interest

Ambivalent desire for silent smooth death to save face

Passing into the unknown to null the void

Where does the strength of hope and strong faith store themselves

The hope and faith that escapes routinely

The mindset that not loved or lovable

In the way that love connects and displays itself in others

Holding hands embracing shared feelings mutual warm caring

Walking through life together in states of bliss

And the forgiving times of challenging compromise

Engaging in mutual togetherness

The joy and pleasure to life in partnership

Where are the feelings that might bring that same euphoria

Life giving sustained purposeful connection

The enrichment of intimacy sidestepped

Mornings evenings day in and day out

How does this escape an open heart so full of gratitude

Life perhaps what others fail to see

The cast of life that isn’t me
